HAWKWIND Signs With EASTWORLD RECORDINGS

Eastworld Recordings has announce the signing of legendary space rockers HAWKWIND.

The original pioneers of space rock return with their eagerly awaited new album, "Blood Of The Earth", their first in five years. Produced by the band at state-of-the-art recording facility Earth Studios, "Blood Of The Earth" takes the listener on a journey through crushing visceral space rock, doom driven poetry, whimsical mantras and imagination opera. An example of humans and machines pulsing in harmony out into the void....

HAWKWIND is an English rock band, one of the earliest space rock groups. Their lyrics favour urban and science fiction themes. They are also a noted precursor to punk rock and now are considered a link between the hippie and punk cultures.

Formed in early1969 by singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Brock, HAWKWIND has gone through many incarnations and styles of music. Critic Jim Green describes their trademark sound as characterized by "that gargantuan and impenetrable pre-metal/hardcore drone, those great riffs, that inexorable drive to destinations unknown". Dozens of musicians have worked with the group; notable fantasy and science fiction writer Michael Moorcock was an occasional collaborator.
